BUNKER HILL — Authorities in Indiana say charges have been brought in the separate slayings of two inmates at the Miami Correctional Facility.
Indiana State Police announced Thursday that 53-year-old inmate Phillip Sadler has been charged with murder in the June 10 smothering death of 70-year-old Lannie Morgan of South Bend. A not guilty plea has been entered for Sadler and he requested a lawyer.
Also Thursday, police announced 42-year-old Michael Parrish is charged with murder in the May 19 strangulation death of his cellmate, 56-year-old Richard Carrell. A not guilty plea has been entered for Parrish and he requested a lawyer.
Court records Friday didn't list the name of a public defender in either case.
The Miami Correctional Facility is located near Bunker Hill, about 60 miles (97 kilometers) north of Indianapolis.
